Completed in 1902, the 10-bedroom, five-bath, and five half-bath home was built by a local contractor in the dead of winter. “He used oxen to haul the materials across the frozen Sound,” according to listing agent Joseph Piscitelli.
Phelps also put in a tennis court, six-hole golf course, and 365 rose bushes. The golf course is just a putting green now, but the tennis court has been upgraded with a Har-Tru clay surface.
The 13,100-square-foot home has been updated in bright colors and playful wallpaper. The home features a formal dining room, eat-in country kitchen with commercial-grade appliances and granite countertops, butler’s pantry, great room, drawing room, billiard room, office, and yoga room.
“Every fruit tree is perfectly placed,” says Piscitelli.
There are three beaches for swimming and two boat docks (boat not provided).
